As Robert Mueller’s clearly biased investigation continues to crumble, a rumor spread rapidly that Trump may fire Mueller before Christmas.
While this was immediately debunked as fake news from Trump’s counsel and the President himself, that did not stop the left from over-reacting and having epic meltdowns
Several Democrats, including the disgraced Eric Holder, went on twitter rampages that included thinly veiled threatening language.
ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office. If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both. The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative.

Former Obama-era director of the Office of Government Ethics, Walter Shaub took this to another level entirely and suggested that he, along with others, would “take the streets” in rebellion, apparently a cry to overthrow President Trump during the Christmas season.
This weekend I’m stocking up on portable phone chargers, warm clothes, & gear needed for when we take the streets. I’m concerned the assault on the rule of law is coming over the holidays when we’re distracted. It‘ll be a defining moment for the Republic. https://t.co/Ewn5tdx8e6

After being called out, Shaub attempted to walk back his comments, claiming he meant to say “take to the streets,” and couldn’t hide his arrogant elitist attitude while replying to one average American.
Well there was a typo. I meant take “to” the streets. But so far 11,000 people knew what I meant. So I guess you are just one man.

It’s unlikely that elitist Shaub would ever “take to the streets” himself, but are his comments blowing a dog whistle for radical left groups like Antifa?
